What I'm doing this summer

Wearing: Got some Chuck Taylor Converse navy low tops for the summer. Haven't had any since I was a kid. First time I wore them I rubbed all the skin off of my heals. Got to remember to break them in. Also wearing cargo shorts. I need them to hold my perscription sunglasses, phone, notepad, ipod mini, camera, etc. I'm migrating away from printed tees to solid color better cut and quality tees. I also picked up a pair of super lightweight khakis that are great for summer nights.
Planning: To go to Canada for my cousin's wedding in August and see my brother and new niece/nephew due in July.
Listening to: the new White Stripes on my ipod mini.
Reading: Mixtape edited by Thurston Moore and A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby
Watching: The Detroit Pistons beat the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, Six Feet Under, and a slew of embarrassing reality shows.
Bored of: People ranting

Happy with: My new Sony Cybershot 7.2 megapixel camera
Snacking: Charleston mini chews and Junior Carmels (from the makers of Junior mints, they're like soft Milk Duds)
Drinking: Newcastle, Sierra Mist, Minute Maid light Mango Passion
Loving: How cute my wife is in her maternity clothes.
Anticipating: My son being born in October.

It's Lisa, y'all said...

I just bought a pair of sensible black lowtop Chuck Taylors a couple of months ago. I had a green pair that I loved in college, but hadn't worn any since then.

After wearing birkenstocks for the past 8 years, putting on Chuck Taylors made me realize that they are the most uncomfortable and unsupportive shoes ever! I used to look at people my age or older who were wearing Chuck Taylors and think, "Wow, they're really cool. They're totally still young and hip!" Now I'm like, "Wow, they're totally ruining their arches!" I had to buy a pair of arch support inserts to make them wearable, but even then the soles are so thin that I can feel every stone or crack in the pavement.

I still think they look cool, but I guess I'm just not going to be a CT kind of girl again. Give me my Sauconys any day! More power to you!
